This is a clean, well-designed hotel with helpful staff and good-sized rooms. A pleasant surprise was that the hotel wasn't huge, like the Bonaventure across the way. I actually felt like I was in a boutique hotel.
Some people aren't comfortable in downtown LA, which lacks charm to put it mildly. But it's an easy walk to good food and to entertainment (museums and Disney Hall within walking distance, 3 movie theaters on the hotel premises). A fabulous Gold's Gym (complete with pool and boxing ring) is just 3 blocks away.
LA's public transportation system is underrated, yet it has received recent rewards, and deservedly so. From the hotel, 25 cents during dayltime hours on LA DOT's shuttle will get you to Little Tokyo and to Chinatown, just a mile or two away, with a neighborhood feel and lots of moderate-priced restaurants.The LA Metro takes you to the center of Hollywood in 20 minutes. I even managed to get to the Getty Villa in Malibu on two city buses, in just over an hour.
